On April 26, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Nils Lofgren (E Street Band) released his new studio album "Blue with Lou," where he pays homage to the late Lou Reed.
Particularly impressive about this album is that he co-wrote half of the songs with Lou Reed.
The CD opens with "Attitude City," which instantly lures the listener in this 12-track collection, and he picks up the pace with "
Give." The haunting ballad "Talk Thru the Tears" is pure soul. Equally noteworthy is the mid-tempo "Pretty Soon," as well as the smooth "Rock or Not."
Other stand-out cuts include "Cut Him Up," "Don't Let Your Guard Down," and of course, the title track "Blue with Lou."
The album closes with the bluesy "Dear Heartbreaker" and on a fitting note with the tender ballad, "Remember You."
Blue with Lou is available on iTunes and on Spotify.
